Very nice! The rock is my favorite also, but the whole series is well done. While I agree about the halo around the bridge in the last one, I otherwise like the picture. I've had trouble with HDR pictures taken right around dawn - one of the things I love about that time of day is that lovely deep blue color. My HDR's haven't managed to deal with that color as well as the other colors in a scene either. Looks like you are well on your way.

I think they all look very good, but my favourite is definetly the one with the rock! It's a terrific shot and a sensational HDR!

Maybe the last one is a bit over-the-top (specially the bridge), but everyone has his own style when it comes to HDR

I was practicing my "guessing" skills and when I came to #2 I thought you were using Dynamic Photo HDR because of the nearly black-bottomed clouds. Then when I came to the last one I thought that's definitely Photomatix.

All nice shots! They are all very pleasing to me.

Bynx, ever since I started getting comments on my HDR-edits of clouds I started observing them in real life and noticed that sometimes they do have dark gray bottoms. I guess since HDR increases contrast (in addition to other things it does) anything gray becomes darker including clouds. And so for aladyforty's #2 image, maybe because I have adjusted my expectations on HDR-edited clouds which is wrong I know because I am looking from a vantage point of reality imitating art instead of the other way around , I am OK with the clouds.

I too, dont have a problem with the dirty clouds. But they are a sure giveaway that the pic is HDR even if all else is perfect.

They are all really well done. My favorite is the big rock also but the others are beautiful too.

I actually like the composition of the last one the best. I think it could be saved with a little work in PS.
